Tattoo Placements

When you’re itching to turn your décolletage into a work of art, you’re probably planning on getting a sternum tattoo. Sternum tattoos are pretty much the most popular, prominent middle chest tattoos for females and that’s why we’re more than happy to offer you a helping hand.

Sternum tattoos are a common form of body adornment – they simply happen to be the type of accessory you can’t take off at the end of the day. Whether you’re on the hunt for an attractive, addictive piece of ink to add to your collection or something new to try out, a sternum tattoo might be for you.

Men can get sternum tattoos, too, but women seem to have taken to the trend much more than men. Women are drawn to hidden designs that will peek through a shirt or bralette and tickle the fancy, as well as designs that can easily be concealed and revealed – depending on personal preferences.

Sternum tattoos are wearable and versatile, and they’re located below the breast area on the chest. Big or small, sternum tattoos fit pretty much any aesthetic, style, and preference. Before you opt for a collarbone or a shoulder tattoo (boring!), we’re bringing you a few of our favorite middle chest tattoos for females.
